The Creative Agency for the Account Director

This is one of the most famous integrated creative agencies in London.  It tops the new business table and recently won Agency of the Year.   This is because it is one of the few agencies that actually does what it says on the tin!  

Unlike the big networks that knock out instantly forgettable saccharine campaigns, this agency is all about being sharp, tart and impactful .    

They have big ideas and stand as a beacon for creativity with their maverick entrepreneurialism.

They are key players on the pitch warpath and remain an irresistible choice to clients as they manage the tricky business of converting pitches but offering good levels of service to their existing clients.

They have an exciting portfolio and have built their reputation on turning challenger brands into stars.

More than any other agency, they know how to shake up a category and get tongues wagging about their work.

They get branding, yet have always been media neutral and embrace the rapid changes to the media landscape from social media through to TV.

The Account Director role

This is a brilliant opportunity for an Account Director with a passion for football and keen on handling a big above the line campaign for the World Cup.

The agency is seeking an Account Director with a challenger spirit looking for a new adventure!  The role is perfect for an Account Director who fancies spending Monday morning on the phone chatting to the client about Saturday’s game and their fantasy league table.

The agency gets the importance of account handling and the difference talent and energy can make to the business.  This shrewd agency believes in investing for the future.

They lionise creative risk taking and know there is no value in a big haul of low-calibre awards.  The agency focuses on the “hard – to – win” Pencils that are a marker of excellence in the craft of creativity yet are only sparingly awarded to greatness.

The Account Director will be handling a brand new win on a fast-paced UK based account that has sport at its heart.  

This is a highly exciting account win on a brand that covets a start up mentality!  The brand really knows how to mine a great creative idea and has humour at its core.

The London agency will be taking the brand lead on the account, handling creative and strategy.  The agency’s role is to help a highly successful brand achieve standout in a jostling reactive sector.

The Account Director needs to be thoroughly steeped in above the line with a good grounding in producing TV campaigns and a thorough knowledge of Clearcast since this forms a key part of the media mix.  In addition the Account Director will be getting involved in some digital and social so an interest in popular trends is useful.

In addition the Account Director will need to have a firm grasp of brand strategy and the passion to fight for great creative.  

Entrepreneurial self-starters thrive at the agency and this is the secret to their ability to take their client’s brands into the arena of popular culture so that it is talked about and transcends regular media channels.
The type of Account Director to thrive at the agency is one who is opinionated with plenty of dynamism and ambition.
There is something quite powerful about an agency that has held onto its creative integrity.  A lot of the creative networks have lost their heritage to the bean counters who have taken over by stealth: slowly chipping away at The Work.   This clever agency kicks up its heels and rebels at convention.  

Highlights of the Account Director role:

  • Joining an ambitious creatively driven top 10 integrated creative agency
  • Handling an incredibly exciting new sports win
  • Winning creative awards
  • Managing a media neutral account
  • Running TV, print, digital, content and social media campaigns

Desirable Experience for the Account Director role:

  • Experience from a well-known creative agency
  • Proven experience on brand led accounts
  • Experience on a fast-paced account
  • Above the line agency background including TV and Clearcast
